Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

My vehicle has intermittent problems with the power steering failure. The steering wheel goes from practically frozen to being loose without warning. This can cause driving off the road, into traffic, crash, etc. Dealership, delta Audi, grand rapids, mi, cannot replicate and refuse to drive similar to the conditions it fails, for lack of staff and resources. Audi of America and "state representative" and "end of the line" decision maker ryan conlin (248) 754-3426, states he will offer no further resolve. He refuses to put in writing efforts made to resolve, to date. He states that I may not speak with, nor have contact information for his supervisor kelly roland. I am told that my vehicle is operational. Unpredicatable ability to steer a vehicle is a clear safety issue. Audi refuses to appropriately address.
